Thanks, Martin, Richard, Vincent and Rodney!!
I managed to solve the problem. A summary for the record.
I first followed Richard's suggestion and checked the path
in R within ess/emacs using the command below.
The PATH variable didn't reflect the definitions in either
~/.tcshrc or ~/.bashrc - in fact, it reflected the PATH
definition in ~/.emacs - something that I had added a long
time ago to solve an issue with another application...
The command I had in ~/.emacs was
(setenv "PATH" "/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:$PATH")
which for some reason I don't know didn't work for R (it
did work for the original purpose I had added the line in
the first place...)
Replacing the old definition with the following worked for
both R and the other application:
(setenv "PATH" (concat "/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin" ":"
Anyway, now it's everything working fine!!!
Thanks a lot, again!
